Internal data show that F.B.I. morale remains high under the new director, but the figures further undercut one of President Trump’s explanations for firing James B. Comey.
After the F.B.I. director James B. Comey was fired, the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, privately appeared conflicted about his involvement in the dismissal.
The president said a new Justice Department inspector general report exposed the “scum on top” of the F.B.I. and showed “total bias” against him.
President Trump called the F.B.I. a “den of thieves,” said it’s “great to give” Kim Jong-un credibility, and again blamed Barack Obama for Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
“Doesn’t get any lower than that!” Mr. Trump wrote of findings in a Justice Department report that detailed texts between F.B.I. agents who opposed his presidential bid.
